Welcome to The Amazing Spider-Man 2 achievement guide. This is a nice little movie tie-in and quite an easy game to complete. Like any other Spider-Man games there are some collectables to find, but not as many as the first Amazing Spider-Man game. Everything is pretty straight forward, but a bit of grinding out XP will be required for the completion. 

Story Mode
For starters I want to highly recommend that you switch suits once the one you're wearing is maxed out. This will save you a lot of time when you go for the grind of maxing out all the suits. Keeping your Hero status up will get you more XP.

Start out Super Hero difficulty. The game isn't all that hard so you might as well only do one playthrough. Just don't change the difficulty until AFTER you've completed the story. There are only 14 main missions, straight forward and fairly short.

There aren't nearly as many collectables as the first Amazing Spider-Man game, and even then you don't necessarily have to collect them all. There are only 5 within story missions and 5 within the open city for the "Lover" achievement. The only other collectable you'll need are the comic pages. There are 300 but you'll only need 285 for the achievement. Once you fully upgrade Spider Sense these will show up on your mini map and you'll be able to find them easier while in Spider Sense.

Side Missions
You can do side missions in between story missions or after you complete story mode. If you're having trouble with any of the side missions, save them after you complete story mode. You can lower the difficulty and it will not affect any of the side mission achievements. There are some side missions that aren't linked to achievements and I'd advise to just stay away from them as they don't really offer much XP. The ones you'll want to do are:

Building on Fire Situations: 10
Deadlock Situations: 10
Petty Crime Situations: 10
Rescue Situations: 10

Combat Challenges: All 12 (found in the comic shop)
Hideouts: All 5
Photo Investigations: All 30
Races: All 15

Maxing Out All Suits
This is really tedious as you won't even have half of the suits upgraded once you're done with the story and the required side missions. Luckily you can load up the last chapter and grind out the needed XP. See "Ultimate Spider-Man" for the specific details.

The game is fairly easy and quite fun. Just remember to change suits once you max one out, try to keep your Hero status up, and do NOT change the difficulty until after you've completed story mode.

There are 46 achievements with a total of 1000 points

  • Human



    Complete the game on Human difficulty


    See "Super Hero"

  • Hero



    Complete the game on Hero difficulty


    See "Super Hero"

  • Complete the game on Super Hero difficulty

    If you start and complete the game on Super Hero difficulty, the two lower difficulty achievements will stack also. You'll also earn "Now It Is Over" for defeating the final boss.

    You cannot lower the difficulty mid-game and change it back again to earn the higher level difficulty achievements. The game will warn you of this if you try to change the difficulty.

  • Collect all Spider-Man comic books

    There are 300 comic pages in the game, but you only need to find 285 to complete all the comic books. This may seem like a lot, but most are in the open on top of buildings, are easier to see at night, and once you've fully upgraded Spider-Sense these will show up on the mini map.

  • Lover



    Retrieve all parts of Black Cat's journal

    There are only 10 parts you'll need to find: 5 within story missions and 5 within the open city. See the video below for their locations.

  • Retrieve all parts of Menken's journal


    See "Reporter"

  • Retrieve all parts of Detective's journal


    See "Reporter"

  • Achieve a combo streak of 42

    If you're in an area with a lot of enemies and you mind your dodges, this should come within the story. An easy way that I found was during a petty crimes task. I defeated all of the enemies but one and tapped  for a Web-Strike. Wait a bit and do another Web-Strike. Rinse and repeat. You can keep doing this until you get to 42 without finishing off the enemy. I did this before I completely upgraded the Web-Strike, so it's not certain if that has any affect or not.

  • Perform 15 signature moves

    See "Master of the Web"

  • Destroy 20 body armors

    This will come naturally through story progression. Using the ionic web is the fastest way to destroy armor. Just tap  a few times and the armor will deteriorate.

  • Unlock all character bios

    This is basically story-related. Once the game is over and after the credits have rolled, you'll get another cut scene. After the cut scene is over the achievement will pop.

    This achievement has been reported to be glitchy. I recommend NOT skipping the credits and NOT skipping the after-credits cut scene to ensure it'll pop once you continue the game.

  • Complete all photo challenges

    There are 30 Photo Investigations. These are extremely easy and quick to complete and there are only 3 types of photo challenges that you'll need to photograph and are associated with 3 other achievements.

    1. "Special Agent" - there will be two guys in suits you'll need to photograph
    2. "Investigator" - there will be a cop with a laptop, just photograph the laptop
    3. "Hunter of Killers" - there will be a cop over a body, you'll need to find Cletus Kasady's initals "C.K." on a nearby wall to photograph

  • Defeat 50 enemies by performing stealth takedowns

    A stealth takedown is performed by tapping  when close enough to an enemy without then noticing you. They'll have a purple glow when they are able to be stealthly taken down. Using only stealth takendowns on the hideouts are basically required, so you should get these by completing the hideouts if you don't use them anywhere else during the story.

  • Disarm 50 enemies

    Pretty simple, just tap  to disarm an enemy with a weapon. Just do this to 50 enemies with weapons and the achievement is yours.

  • Unlock all suits

    There are 13 suits in total you'll need for this achievement. 

    3 suits are given to you at the start of the game.
    2 suits are story-related and are given to you for defeating Black Cat and Carnage.
    6 suits are awarded for completing the story hideout and the 5 optional hideouts.
    1 suit is awarded for completing all 15 races.
    1 suit is awarded for completing all 12 combat challenges.

    You will also earn the "State of the Art" achievement for collecting all the concept art while completing these. You'll unlock all of the concept art by completing 11 races and 11 combat challenges.

  • Complete all hideouts

    These will show up as a purple eye icon on the map. There are only 5 hideouts and are fairly simple to complete. I recommend being stealthy and work on your stealth takedowns. If you're awareness bar fills you'll fail and have to restart.

  • Complete all combat challenges

    Once you get to the comic book store with Stan you'll have the opportunity to "play" the arcade game in the store. There are 12 challenges to complete, each with 4 stages. Some have stipulations, but they aren't too hard. Also some have a surprise round that really doesn't affect if you pass or fail the stage, but only extra XP.

  • Achieve 30 multidodges

    You can only multidodge when two enemies are attacking you at the same time. To dodge one attacker, you tap . To perform a multidodge, naturally you double tap . You should get this naturally while playing through the story. If not, you can grind these out in the same location described in "Ultimate Spider-Man".

  • Achieve 100 critical hits

    A critical hit is performed by following an attack with another attack. You'll have to tap  when the first attack hits your opponent. You'll know when you've performed this correctly when Spider-Man's hands and feet have a red glow about them. If you spam  while fighting you should get this naturally. If not, you can grind these out in the same location described in "Ultimate Spider-Man".

  • Defeat 100 enemies

    See "Heavyweight Champion"

  • Defeat 300 enemies

    See "Heavyweight Champion"

  • Defeat 500 enemies

    This may not come before you finish the story, but it'll come when grinding the XP to max out all the suits.

  • Save 50 civilians

    This will come naturally while completing the fire situations and rescue situations. If not just complete a few more until it pops.

  • Reach maximum levels for all suits

    The maximum level for each suit is 8. This will be a long grind. Even after switching suits once they were maxed out while playing through story mode I only had 4 suits maxed out. See the video below for a good place to grind out the XP. Replay the last story mission "Maximum Carnage" until you get to the part where you have to save Menken. Use the fully upgraded Seismic Blast to knock out the enemies and quickly perform finishers on as many as you can. Repeat until you've defeated them all. Make sure that you're not within the circle when you defeat the last guy or you'll get to a save point. Once you get the XP for the fight, reload the save and you'll start back at the beginning of the fight.

  • Unlock all concept art

    See "Fashionista"

  • Get your heroism to the maximum

    This is pretty simple. Once you're allowed to to side missions, complete a few to raise your hero level. Once you fill up the 3 bars, you'll achieve maximum hero status and unlock the achievement.

  • Complete 10 deadlock situations

    Look for the gun icon on the map and you'll have to land on the helicopter to start the side mission. This will be a shootout against 12-15 enemies and the police. They will be concentrated on the police so getting a lot of stealth takedowns will be easy, but not necessary. Take out all of the enemies to complete the mission. Just complete 10 of these for the achievement.

  • Complete 10 building on fire situations

    These are the fire icons on the map. You'll have to land on the fire truck to start it. For these you'll have to locate 2-5 civilians in a burning building and bring them back one at a time to the safe zone. 

    These are timed and can be somewhat challenging on Super Hero difficulty. You can change the difficulty to make any of the side missions easier. Only change the difficulty AFTER you've completed the story. Changing the difficulty only affects difficulty related achievements.

  • Complete 10 rescue situations

    These are a person icon on the map. For these all you have to do is help a trapped civilian and take them to the hospital. That's it.

  • Complete 10 petty crime situations

    These are the fist icon on the map and consists of 2-5 thugs to defeat. These are easy and if you've fully upgraded the seismic blast these will be even easier. Just blast them all and perform a signature move to all of them while they're knocked out.

  • Complete 5 races

    For this achievement you only need to finish 5 of the 15 races, but you'll have to complete all 15 for one of the suits for "Fashionista". There are two different types of races: The first one you can just tap  to zip to each checkpoint. The other has two different checkpoints, one where you automatically zip to it, and the other you'll have to do whatever you can to get there, being running, swinging, running, etc.

    These are timed and can be somewhat challenging on Super Hero difficulty. You can change the difficulty to make any of the side missions easier. Only change the difficulty AFTER you've completed the story. Changing the difficulty only affects difficulty related achievements.

  • Perform 50 signature moves

    This will be very simple to do once seismic blast is fully upgraded. This will knock the enemy out for a short while giving you the opportunity to perform a signature move. If you haven't gotten this by the end of the story, see "Ultimate Spider-Man" for a good boosting location.

  • Sneaky



    Complete a hideout without being spotted

    This will more than likely pop while playing through the hideouts as being stealthy is almost required to complete them. Use your spidey sense and take out each enemy one at a time.

    See "Super Hero"

  • Damaged Carnage with fire at least 3 times before defeating him

    There are two phases to this fight and you can get this in either one. The first all you do is wear down his health and dodge any of his attacks. Turn on all of the incinerators and lure him to one. I used Web-Strike to hit him close to the fire, if not into the fire. Do a few regular attacks if he didn't land in the fire. You can easily knock him into the fire 3 times before phase two.

    During phase two he will jump from pillar to pillar, and like phase one, make sure all the incinerators are on. Locate him and seismic blast him when he's directly above one of the fires. You will have to take care of some Carnage minions and then locate him again and knock him down 2 more times.

  • Acquired the Seismic Blast ability

    Story-related and cannot be missed.

    This is unlocked after defeating Shocker.

  • Acquired the Ionic Web ablity

    Story-related and cannot be missed.

    This is unlocked after defeating Kraven.

  • Destroyed any armored enemy using Web-Strike

    The description is a little misleading. You don't need to destroy the enemy with Web-Strike, just the armor. Shoot the armor with  a few times and when his armor turns gray (which means it's deteriorating), hit him with Web-Strike by pressing . You have to hit the Web-Strike quickly before the armor deteriorates on its own. There will be more than enough enemies to try this on.
